Paris Premières Roses Fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent constantly keeps us in suspense what’s next. After reincarnated its iconic Opium and dressed it in gold last year, and unveiled its regenerating skin cream named Or Rouge, the French brand delighted us with the Paris Premières Roses 2014 Limited Edition. This new scent is variation of their yearly limited edition springtime flanker of the brand’s well-known 1983 Paris fragrance created by Sophia Grojsman.

Developed by perfumer Dominique Ropion, new fragrance includes notes of wild rose, violet, neroli, muguet, rose, peony, white musk and sandalwood. The multifaceted bottle features a pink tint and a new floral motif in gold.

Yves Saint Laurent Paris Premières Roses Edition Limitée will be available in 125 ml Eau de Toilette Légère and will arrive at perfume counters traditionally from March, priced at €77 ($106).

Golden Bike From Denmark

Lauge Jensen is not known for designing his motorbikes in anything but the most revolutionary ways. The company's creations were the first motorcycle in the world to pass the new EURO4 emission regulations.
Now it seems, however, that Lauge has added a new air of flamboyance to these eco-friendly products as the latest bike comes wrapped almost entirely in 24-carat gold and sprinkled gingerly with hundreds of diamonds.

The bike is designed more as a concept showpiece, costing approximately £550,000 as it contains a good few thousand pounds of gold. There is no word yet on the weight of the glitzy chopper but our guess would be it is probably heavy enough to make handling a challenge.

The bike is capable of being ridden, however, should that be the request of any potential owners the gold exhaust system would need to be removed, unless you fancy the prospect of leaving a trail of gold as you ride your pricey two wheeler into the sunset.

Not So Bad to Be Oscars Losers – They Get $80,000 Gift Bag

Not so bad to be Oscars losers. Even they didn’t go home empty-handed. Now, traditionally Oscar’s losers will receive a modest gift bag. This year’s consolation bags are valued at $80,000 and are gift by US Company Distinctive Assets, who is also responsible for the gift bags and celebrity lounges of the Grammys and the Emmys. Not bad, since last years were more modest – $45,000 and in 2011, that amount was $75,000. With five nominee’s categories – Best Actor/Actress, Supporting Actor/Actress and Director, and therefore four losers in each of those category, that comes out to $1.6 million dollars’ worth of swag.

Some of the items can be interesting to losers celebrity such as vacation packages to Hawaii, the Canadian Rockies ($6,850) , Las Vegas, Mexico, Japan ($15,000) or a face-to-face meeting with Boyz II Men in Las Vegas worth $9,000, various spa and therapy services worth $7,455 and stays at a variety of resorts valued at $5,300.
Of course there are a plenty of other less useful gifts including pet products ($7,706) or Krystal Klear Water’s whole house water filtration system ($4,895), and not to forget a vaginal rejuvenation procedure ($2,700), and a hair restoration surgery ($16,000).

And there are a plenty of unnecessary trinkets such as $280 worth of pure organic maple syrup, salad dressings, jellies, mustard, and an apron. But that’s not all! Each star will receive an adoption certificate of a maple tree in Notre-Dame-Des-Bois. But, hey, they’re losers!
